you with us. it's a referendum on taxes but as candidate romney said some months ago down in florida, if 47%, 46% of the households are already paying no taxes, is his message of lower taxes going to resonate with that significant portion of the electorate? >> i actually think that message does resonate. most americans know instinctively higher taxes mean slower growth, fewer jobs. whether you're paying income taxes, everyone has a strong interest in robust economy and a low tax rate is part of that. >> sir, if obama wins re-election, will republicans have to give up on their no tax hike position? >> the question is not really whether they'll give up. no, they don't have to give up. the problem is all the bush tax cuts run out automatically. republicans could vote to extend them unless the president is willing to sign that extension. then they run out. that, by the way, could have happened in 2010. the only reason we were able to avoid it then is the president, i think, wisely decided the economy was too weak and we bargained with him. gave him an extension of unemployment benefits i
, are you looking at different scenarios if the president wins re-election versus a romney win? how are you playing that? >> well, number one, i don't think anybody's going to have a landslide. i think that the possibility of change is going to be very close in terms of the presidency of the house and the senate. it will be interesting. we don't see any gigantic changes. if that's the case, then i think that there will have to be deals made and we'll get back to business. >> all right, david -- >> it's not sustainable. >> right. >> david, how do you disagree with bill? he's got that rosy scenario. you don't. >> i don't. $800 billion bill coming due in the first quarter. it won't be that much. it might be $200 billion. nevertheless, that's going to slow down real u.s. gdp growth from 2% to less than 2% in the first half of 2013. that's going to have an impact on earnings. i might like what's happening on an individual company basis, but this fiscal cliff is simply just not the right remedy for the u.s. economy and profits to grow above expectations. it's all on the back of the fed. we've see
. ♪ >>> finally mitt romney's got something good to feel good about. i'm talking about unemployment. specifically, what we heard from paychex, the second largest pay rolling company in america. especially hiring small businesses, which irks main clients. last night we got results from paykhex and many considered it disappointing. now, i think paychex is a well-run business. while the company is facing a tough environment, the quarter wasn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination. it beat it by a penny on a 40 cents basis and 2% year over year. last time i thought that was the hugely important key metric. however, the growth year seems to be decelebrating. especially since that's why i'm thrilled to have marty, the chairman and ceo here to talk about the quarter. mr. mucy, welcome back to "mad money." >> good to be here, jim. >> i've got to oh tell you, i've been through these various downgrades and it's almost like they thought that the payroll numbers had dropped so we have 6.5 to 7% unemployment. the fact is we always thought it was this number that we cared so much about which was the actu
